|The clip originally was part of a clamp-on
reading light. The split bead came in a plastic housing; I
removed it and attached the two halves to the clip with hot glue.
The meter is also hot glued, as well as having a cople of cable clamps
holding it for extra security. Although the meter is calibrated
in "Amperes DC x100" it is really a 50 ua meter!
|Here's the side view. There's an 0.01 uf
capacitor accross the meter.
|Here you can see the 10-turn loop of no. 24
enamelled wire and the hot glue that holds the bead halves in
place. The yellow glob on the far side of the top jaw is the 500K
I taped the bead halves together so they would be in close alignment before gluing.
